ProCollars - premium protective collars for dogs and cats
ProCollars are used as an alternative to the buster collar, to reduce the stress suffered by cats and dogs that are recovering from surgery or minor injuries.
The ProCollar works better for your pet than the elizabethan collar because it does not restrict the field of view, so your dog or cat is less likely to bash into furniture. It is also much easier for them to see and reach their food bowl. If you’ve ever seen a dog or cat trying to eat whilst wearing a plastic cone you will know just how difficult and stressful that can be!
The ProCollar has a scratch and bite resistant outer layer and a separate inflatable inner tube, with a velcro fastening strap on the outside edge and fabric hoops to secure against your pet’s collar on the inside edge. The top-up valve can be accessed through the outer layer and pushed in so that it stays flush. There is also a zip on the outer layer for easy removal of the inner tube.
The outer jacket of the ProCollar is now made with a heavy duty canvas fabric which is lighter, breathable and machine washable.
The ProCollar is available in six sizes:
- ProCollar (XS) Extra Small - Up to 6 inches - £15
- ProCollar (S) Small - 6-10 inches - £21
- ProCollar (M) Medium - 10-13 inches - £25
- ProCollar (L) Large - 13-18 inches - £29
- ProCollar (XL) Extra Large - 18-22 inches - £34
- ProCollar (XXL) Double Extra Large - 22+ inches - £42
When fitting the ProCollar all pets should be supervised to ensure they are unable to reach any of the affected areas because with any type of collar (including elizabethan collars) some of the more determined pets may still be able to reach their hind quarters, tails and paws. Using the fabric hoops with your pet’s regular collar to secure the positioning of the ProCollar is recommended, especially for breeds with wide necks such as alsatians and rottweilers.
The ProCollar has also been used by hydrotherapy centres as a buoyancy aid, and in the treatment of long term health conditions such as megaesophagus, where it is used to support head positioning.
The ProCollar is not recommended for breeds with longer bodies and longer necks such as daschunds, whippets, greyhounds, dalmations or dobermanns. In these circumstances you may find it preferable to use the Anti-Lick Strip or the ProCone.
For protection of the facial area and eyes we recommend the Optivizor.
